George Bush recently made the following, highly disturbing, statement:
"We've got a leader in Iran who has announced that he wants to destroy Israel," he said. "So I've told people that, if you're interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing them from having the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon."Dick Cheney followed a few days later, with this one:
“The Iranian regime needs to know that if it stays on its present course, the international community is prepared to impose serious consequences,” Mr. Cheney said, without specifying what those might be. “The United States joins other nations in sending a clear message: We will not allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon.”This leads me to wonder!
If you are one of those other nations Dick Cheney says the United States is joining with, what would frighten you the most:
Iran having the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon?
Or Dick Cheney having control of a whole bunch of actual nuclear weapons?
Any of our many international readers care to weigh in on that question?
